On ABC’s This Week with Martha Raddatz this past Sunday, Republican Margaret Hoover reminded America that the GOP has ALWAYS been the Party to first embrace minority groups. In particular, she was playing up the idea that the GOP has a built in desire to constantly be broadening their base – no matter which direction it may take them.
And Republicans always represented the first in every minority group in the Senate — women, African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans. This is a party that has in its DNA the ability to build out beyond its base. And we should draw on that history to build in the 21st century.
